Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hard disk drive suddenly full. I haven't seen this prob before

\015 Hey guys, I have been recoommending online armor, and auslogic's boost speed to everyone. They have said thank you cos it helped them out heaps. So yay. But one person who followed my advice in getting them, has had some troubles. Somehow, after he installed them, his harddrive now only has 7.6gig left. He says a they added 15 gigs. I got him to run mbam, and it found 11 infections. But that didn't help the problem. I got him to run atf and ccleaner, they didn't help with the problem. Then I found out that he turned his pc off, forgetting that boost speeds disk wiper was in process. Could that be where the 15 gigs has come from? I feel so guilty cos it happened due to progs I recommended. But I am stumped aswell, because he is the only person it has happened to.Any advice would be greatly appreaciated.\015

Answers :

Looks like virus infection

if u still can boot, save personal data,important driver files and sav-games to cd or extra drive like usb-stick, vir-scan it from a guarded system,

format original hd, build two partions, one primary smaller for os, progs and virtual memory,
other primary or extended for games and data
- use different log-in/accounts on occasion (one admin for installation and maintanance, another guest/ power user for games and internet)
- install games, antivir and firewall and progs from admin login, but surf and game with other log-in, this will make things safer

- make regular backups of your precious data

have fun!
